While I have had some limitations on my usual crafting since my surgery, I have some completed projects which I have not yet shown you. Last year I knit a hood for my daughter. Checking back on my blog, I apparently forgot to take a photo of that. But a... Continue reading

Continued from here My GYN’s office made the referral to the breast surgeon after the mammogram and ultrasound and before my biopsy was scheduled and I had the appointment date before the biopsy happened. So did she really think I was surprised by the diagnosis? While I was grateful that... Continue reading

Outside my window...sun and clouds, a mild start to the morning and warm this afternoon. A lovely spring day I am thinking... about the family who lost their 8th grader this week. Such a tragic event. I am thankful for... feeling good and this respite between surgery and radiation. From... Continue reading

Continued from here Our son who lives with us got the news of the cancer diagnosis at the same time that my husband did. I emailed our daughter as soon as I got home from my meeting. As she and her family were leaving the next day to visit her... Continue reading

continued from here Until this time my husband was the only one who knew all of what was going on. Our kids knew I'd found a lump and were kept up-to-date about my appointments but we did not share the "suspicious" description with them. The only other person who knew... Continue reading

My life was swimming along as usual. I was excited to be starting the 50 hour training to become a Stephen minister. I'd been in our new house for about a year, although my husband hadn't retired and joined me until 8 months ago and I was finally starting to... Continue reading

Outside my window... bright sun, cold temperatures, a brisk wind I am thinking...about getting through my to-do list before surgery. I am thankful for...so many, many things. All the support I am getting from family and friends has me humbled and grateful. From the kitchen...turkey roasting, part of my kitchen... Continue reading

It's been a bit more than two weeks since my last post and in that time my life has had a major change. March 6th was the date of my last post and was the day I got the biopsy report and learned that I, like 1 out of 8... Continue reading

Outside my window...bright sun. It's not as warm as it looks or as was forecast, but it's a beautiful day anyway. I am thinking...about the busy week ahead. I am thankful for...the people I am taking the Stephen Ministry class with. From the kitchen...nothing cooking at the moment. DH will... Continue reading

A few weeks ago I lost my hat. It was one of those days that you wanted a hat when you started out the day but didn't need it later. When I noticed it missing I figured I'd left it in the car, but apparently I was wrong. The perfect... Continue reading

Outside my window...thinning fog. It was much heavier when I got up, but hasn't burned off as early as expected. When it does, we are promised sun and 60s. I am thinking...about taking the dogs to a park this afternoon. I am thankful for...the lovely, sunny, warm weather we have... Continue reading

One of the January blocks, the one on the left, was a real challenge for me, one which I tackled but did not perfect. From a distance, the overall impression is okay, but if you look closely you see that lots of the triangle points are blunted. And, if you... Continue reading

Outside my window...gray skies, mild temperature for early February, almost the same as last week. At least they have downgraded our slight risk for severe thunderstorms today to a marginal risk. I am thinking...about finding a doctor, one of the things I least like about moving. I am thankful for...my... Continue reading

Since last month when I posted on knitting projects, I have made four pairs of fingerless gloves, three for a friend and her family and a pair for my son. They are all variations of the same pattern with various modifications that were requested. None of the colors are perfect... Continue reading

As I mentioned in my last post there has been a lot of bookcase rearranging lately. One of the things I found was an old notebook. In that notebook I found something I had written some time ago. It's not dated, but my best guess is that I wrote this... Continue reading

Outside my window...gray skies, tree branches bending in the breeze, mild temperature for late January. I am thinking...about how to get everything done I want to do today and still have some quiet time. I am thankful for...my family and our generally good health. From the kitchen...potato and onion soup... Continue reading

It has become a tradition in our family that granddaughters get a "big girl" quilt some time during the year they are four. In B's case, she picked out the fabric while she was still three. She wanted foxes for her theme, so we got some fabric featuring foxes and... Continue reading

Outside my window...blue skies, then gray skies, then blue and gray together. A few birds at the feeder but they are appreciating upper 50 degree temperatures and finding other food I suspect. I am thinking... about my class tonight. The subject is listening. I am thankful for ... sunlight. My... Continue reading

Some of you may have noticed with my last post that I had finally updated my stash report on the right hand side of the page. Until last week is had stopped in 2015. Actually, as I unexpectedly moved to Ohio in October of 2015, I'm not really sure if... Continue reading

Lest you think I haven't been doing any quilting - and I haven't been doing a lot I confess - I do have a series of blocks of the month (BOM) to show you. I have found a local quilt guild and joined in July. For this year all of... Continue reading

I've been on Goodreads for several years now, after my daughter suggested it as a good place to move my hard copy "books read" list when I was spending so much time at her house for the birth of babies. Last year was the first year that I participated in... Continue reading

I've made mittens before, especially for my granddaughters, and fingerless gloves, but I think this year was the first I tackled gloves. If my memory is correct, over the course of 2016 I made five pairs of gloves and recently got a commission to make three more pairs of fingerless... Continue reading

It has been far too long since I've shown up here. Part of that has been because I have been considering other directions to take my blog, but mostly it has been lost in the shuffle of moving, settling into my husband's retirement and, frankly, inertia. But today I will... Continue reading
